I was born and raised in Columbia, South Carolina. I am currently a senior at Winthrop University and a candidate for a B.F.A. in Art with a concentration in painting. After graduating, I plan to enter the M.A.T (Master of Art in Teaching) program with a goal of teaching either middle school or high school while pursuing a career as an illustrator.
My work revolves around the idea of graphicacy , which is the ability to interpret information in the form of an image. This concept of visually communicating an idea is something that has always attracted me to the arts especially sequential art. Sequential art embodies this idea of graphicacy, and it is this ability to tell a story through images that I explore in my paintings.
